Kim Kardashian Has Helped Free 17 Drug Offenders In Last 90 Days

Kim Kardashian West is staying true to her pledge to fight for prison reform. According to CNN, Kim has been quietly working behind the scenes over the past three months to help commute the life sentences of 17 first-time nonviolent drug offenders.

Brittany K. Barnett, Kardashian West’s personal attorney and co-founder of the Buried Alive Project, and MiAngel Cody, lead counsel of the The Decarceration Collective, told CNN that Kardashian West has been instrumental in the release of these inmates.

“Kim has been funding this project and (has been) a very important supporter of our 90 Days of Freedom campaign as part of the First Step Act, which President Trump signed into law last year,” Cody said. “We’ve been going around the country in courtrooms and asking judges to release these inmates.”

“We are thrilled that Kim Kardashian continues to lend her voice to this important, life-saving work,” said Angela Wynn, media liaison at the Decarceration Collective. “We encourage everyone to link arms to bring about transformative criminal justice.”

An initiative for justice 

Kim Kardashian has been increasing her involvement in criminal justice reform in the last year, meeting with Mr. Trump at the White House in May 2018 to discuss the case of Alice Marie Johnson. She was a 63-year-old one-time non-violent drug offender serving a life sentence. Following that meeting, Mr. Trump commuted Johnson’s sentence and she was released.

The team had hoped to help get more inmates released. But Cody said the group of 17 “were the only ones eligible for that sort of narrow provision that allowed them to go back into the courts.”
